In honor of Teacher Appreciation month all Connecticut public and private teachers receive free admission for the month of July and August. One free ticket per couple. Valid ID required. For more information send a e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Attention Teacher Appreciation.
Each tour is 90 minutes long, total walking distance is less than a mile, covered at a very leisurely pace so that you can enjoy the mysterious atmosphere and haunted locations. We have many different tours to choose from. We conduct our tours with great respect for the, "out of body people". After all they are no different from us - they are free of the physical world. We are positive that our tours will enchant, entertain, inform, and scare you.
We dedicate ourselves to exploring the supernatural, paranormal phenomena, the occult manifestations, and the ghostly happenings. We want to give you an experience that has no equal. We want to challenge your mental facilities and powers of observation. If you dare, participate in our trek into the unknown, share your ghostly experiences with others, and ask yourself: Do you believe what you see, hear, smell, and touch? Do you?
We do not attempt to prove the existence of ghosts or to explain the paranormal; you will decide whether to believe - or not. We intend to expand your imagination and present you with a fun evening of rich storytelling and maybe a chill or two. We hope your experience will inspire you to seek out your own stories and share them.

Parking in New Haven is very tricky as we all know. You have to feed the parking meters till 9:00pm. There is a Yale lot open at night to the public on Temple Street between Wall and Elm Streets. Also if you don't mind paying there is a parking garage on the corner of College and Crown Streets., if there is a show going on at the Shubert Theatre it is only $8.00 to park for more that a couple of hours. There is a parking garage on High Street and meter parking along Chapel and the Green, all of which are a short walk to the stating point.

The tour is handicap accessible, by which I mean wheel chair/walker accessible. Someone with trouble walking might have a bit of a hard time, although there are a few places to sit along the way.
